Two Island Mafia
Hello and welcome to Two Island Mafia, a themed mafia game.
After a large transatlantic cruise ship sank, the passengers are isolated in a two island cluster. However, it is suspected that the ship was actually sabotaged by a group of pirates meaning to steal the passengerís luggage with all its valuable items.
Now what was meant to be vacation and relaxation has turned into a nightmare, you must eliminate the pirates before they eliminate you!
By the end of each Day, each player may send a PM to Shidoshi if they want to change islands at the end of the Day. If the player wants to stay on the same island it is not necessary to send a PM.
There are two Lynches per Day, one for each island. This can greatly accelerate the end of the game, be mindful of your choices.
Each islandís voting is independent, having its own majority and ending when itís attained. However, all players post together in the same topic which will only close when both votings reach majority or the Day ends.
The players will start out half in each island, assigned randomly.
1- All players have a role in the game and it is forbidden to reveal the content of your Role PM ipsis litteris in the gameís topic. Paraphrasing is fine, thereís no guarantee anyone will believe you though.
2- Do not reveal information of the game to people not participating on it, it may create problems if they come in and substitute another player mid-game.
3- The game will cycle between Day and Night until a faction wins the game. Days will last 48h, Nights will last 24h.
4- The game will begin on Day 1, there will already be voting on that day.
5- All votes must be bolded. If you wish to remove your vote, remove the boldface from your previous vote and only then make a new one. If a Lynch voting ends in a draw, the player who achieved that amount of votes first will be lynched.
Ex. [Voto] Shidoshi
6- Voting for No Lynch is an acceptable vote option during the Day and it will result in no player been lynched that Day. If it is wise or interesting to do so is up to the players.
Ex. [Voto] No Lynch
7- Be mindful when editing posts. Unless it's a really minor thing like spelling mistakes, always favor making a new post instead. DO NOT edit posts after the end of the Day.
8- Players are strictly forbidden to talk in private, unless their Role PM explicitly tells them they can.
9- If you are dead or not playing you canít post on the gameís topic. Another topic will be made for discussion.
10- The playersí Role PM will be revealed by me when they die.
11- If you have any questions about your Role PM, the game, or any other commentary or concern, send me a PM. Avoid talking on the game or discussion topics so as to avoid revealing sensitive information.
12- Do not impersonate other players or me, do not produce fake logs, do not take screenshots of the game, do not discuss in private with other players unless your role PM explicitly allows it.
13- If any players breaks any of these rules, he will receive punishment accordingly. In the worst case, heíll be removed from the game and, possibly, future games by me.
14- If thereís any changes to the rules, you will be warned.
I like that it's been a while, it lets people start fresh without the sort of meta-strategies that happen when the same group plays several games together (ie, ____ never votes day 1, so if s/he's voting, something's amiss).
Wanted to ask everyone who's participating, would you rather wait 1-2 weeks for classes and finals to be over and then possibly have more people to play or start with the 11-12 players we have now and have another game later?
